Class News

We have been working really hard this week in all areas of our learning.

In English we are learning the traditional tale of the Magic Porridge Pot. We will be using actions and story mapping to help us remember and re-write the story.

In Maths we are learning to recognise and use different coins. We will take part in lots of practical learning to help us understand the different denominations.

In PHSE, we are learning to listen carefully to others and work as a team co-operatively. Class 4 are half way to getting their mystery present by receiving stickers for every time they work together co-operatively - keep it up Class 4!!


The Early Bird Reading mornings are now in full swing, thank you for supporting your child settle with a book in the morning! Please ensure that you are still reading with your child at home to support thir ongoing development.



To help your children at home...

We are always practicing our counting. To support your child you could count forwards and backwards along a numberline. Maybe make a giant numberline and jump along it together.

Write some number sentences: 7 + 5 = 8   or   10 - 4 = 6


You could listen to your child retell the story of the Magic Porridge Pot and learn the actions to support them in reciting the story.
